Galina is helping my son learn Spanish and she is wonderful! She is prompt, warm, friendly, speaks several languages and so knows how to teach kids trying to learn another language. He looks forward to his lessons with Galina!
Grace is a patient, fun, and dedicated tutor. My two girls enjoy their lessons with Grace. Grace has made it fun for them to learn. They originally started with after-school Chinese lessons at a learning center. Because of the larger classroom size, my kids were not corrected and only learned to copy really well. Grace has corrected their stroke order and established a strong foundation in their reading and writing. We don't speak Mandarin at home so next she will work on their conversation. I am so glad and fortunate to have found Grace!
I have taken Intermediate Level French Lessons with Marion from January through June 2016. Her lessons are well prepared and she is flexible with the material being covered. She is extremely punctual. My overall experience was great.
I worked with Camilla, she is very professional and prepared on Italian language teaching. I improved my fluent language thanks to her professionalism and attention occurred in her work. Good experience!!
It’s a pleasure learning every week with Laura whether we meet at the library, the coffee shop or go for a walk! She is an amazing teacher who quickly identify the area I need to develop and provide the support I need to make good progresses. I strongly recommend her to anyone who would like to learn a new language.
I took English lessons with Toni to improve my vocabulary and my academic English. She was also kind enough to tell me about many local resources and she taught me a lot about the American culture and way of life. Toni is very dedicated in her teaching, and she made sure I learned new idiomatic and local expressions in addition to working on my academic English skills. Towards the end of my semester at UC Berkeley she helped me proof my term papers, and provided me with excellent feedback and very helpful comments on my written English. Not only is she a great teacher, she's also a very warm and friendly person who will make you feel welcome and offer a safe teaching environment. Also, make sure you try her mint tea, it's delicious!
I have been taking Spanish lessons from Ms. Price. She is incredibly personable, knowledgeable and helpful. My Spanish skills have soared since I've started with her. Very friendly, she is an excellent teacher. She knows where weak points are and knows how to explain advanced subjects in a way which is very understandable. I am definitely going to continue lessons and I highly recommend Ms. Price to anyone who is seeking to improve their language skills.
I take both French and Portuguese with Ingrid and have been extremely satisfied. Her holistic approach to learning ensures that you will know how to apply the language lessons you learn in the field. I was on a time constraint to visit old friends in France and I had about 1.5 months to prepare, and Ingrid prepared me linguistically and culturally to blend in and fully enjoy my time there. Subsequently, I learned that I would be moving to Brazil for work. Thank goodness my French teacher also taught Portuguese! I leave for Brazil this week and after two months with Ingrid, I'm ready for full immersion again! If you have ever visited and lived in a country, you know full immersion is like a punch in the face for the ill-prepared (most textbook taught language students), but with Ingrid you can rest assured that you will be fully prepared for full contact language learning!
So far, my son took three lessons from Cristian. Cristian was wonderful
Anish always arrived fully prepared for each lesson. He is super capable and has a way to make even mundane material somewhat interesting. I would recommend him to anyone that wants to increase their score, and fast. He is also an excellent writer, and really put these skills to work when brainstorming with me for my personal statement.
He is very experienced and knowledgeable. He keeps his lesson effective, engaging and fun. Our kids are able to stay focus and overcome their fear of writing. We definitely plan to keep working with Tim
I have taken bi-weekly lessons from Mayumi sensei for over a year and a half now and have learned so much from her. We have used three to five different textbooks and have mastered most all of them. She is not only a positive force but an extremely knowledgeable and capable teacher/tutor. We don't move on until we have understood the grammar points completely. Except for college level classes, I was frustrated with many of the Japanese schools in the area when I first came to her. This one-on-one experience is truly rewarding. The prize at the end of the year was that I was able to pass the JPLT4 test this past December with a 93% score. She helped me prepare for that test thoroughly. I plan on continuing my Japanese language journey with her well into the future. Kudos to Mayumi-san!!!
Ina was very patient and pleasant to work with. She customized the lessons based on my interests and skill level. She is prompt and reliable and flexible. I traveled to cuba recently and she helped me with some travel dialogue and things to learn that would be helpful. I recommend her.
Teacher Wan Wan comes prepared and knows the material to teach my son, and knows how to test him back to see if he absorbs the Chinese lesson well.
I can’t say enough about how great Laurence is as a French teacher. She is professional, very conscientious and is always focused on integrating new learning materials that she thinks will challenge me. She is also flexible - when I wanted to focus on a specific subject, she went out of her way to find relevant materials to use. She is always on time for lessons and again, is flexible if I need to change a lesson time. She is also incredibly kind and patient, and is a lovely person. I highly recommend Laurence as a French teacher.
Ian came over to my house once a week for two hours to tutor me in Japanese. He would teach me grammatical concepts, vocabulary, and about the Japanese culture. The lessons were very fun, and each session was packed with a lot of information. I really recomend his tutoring for those who want to learn Japanese. After only a few sessions in the summer, I was able to pass a Japanese placement test at my university very easily. Ian taught me in a few sessions what an entire semester would cover (at much less of a cost than a university course).
As a Math tutor Sherill is very supportive and has encouraged me to keep trying, even when a times I feel that math is a mystery than can not be resolved. She also is punctual, attentive to my own doubts and bring materials to make the lessons more understadable.
Jessica offered excellent tutoring services; she genuinely cares about her students' progress and patiently answered questions if there is any confusion. Jessica also speaks four languages, so I would definitely recommend her to anyone who is interested to learn a second language as well!
We offer Chinese and Spanish class of every level. We also have after-school programs and art classes for young children (ages more than five).

I am willing to do tutoring, teach lessons and have conversations in Spanish as many hours as needed, any time of the week.
